Allow me to have the honor to open the first topic in this forum :)
Using this little tutorial you can deploy your application (or run it from an USB stick) without the need to register the Codejock controls.
You can even use different versions next to eachother (side by side).

Sounds cool huh? So here's what you need to do:
Unzip the attached file to any place.
Adjust the first 3 lines of the .bat file to suit your needs

set ANSIUnicode=.Unicode
set Version=v15.0.1 
set cjdir=%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Codejock Software\ActiveX\Xtreme SuitePro ActiveX %Version%\Bin\ 

If you don't want unicode controls, then simply replace the first line with
set ANSIUnicode=

The second line is the version of the controls you are using 
The third line is the folder where you have the Codejock controls installed. If you are running on 32 bit, then replace %ProgramFiles(x86)% with %ProgramFiles% 

Run the bat and notice that a folder is created called 'Manifest' 
Inside that folder you'll find most of Codejocks controls with simplified names 

Open the .manifest file in notepad and run the manifest helper. Select all the files you want to use and click "open"

This will save all necessary information on your clipboard.

Replace the

<!-- Replace this block -->
with the information on your clipboard and save the manifest file.

Place the manifest next to your application and change its name to match your executable filename



Thats it! you can run it from any computer (XP and up) without the need to register the controls. 
You don't need to copy all of the controls. For instance, when you just use the commandbars in your app, you will only have to copy Commanbars.ocx.

Another little extra is that you might want to change the elevation property for when being used on Vista computers.
When your application needs administrator privileges, change

Thanks a lot! :-)
What tool did you use to generate it ?

I wrote a small tool myself to collect the necessary information.

Would you be willing to share this tool ?

With this file you should be able to make your own manifests.

Run the exe and then select a dll or ocx you want to use.
It will copy all necessary data to the clipboard, which you can paste into the manifest skeleton.
Simply replace the 'file name' block with your own file(s)

Be wary of the default filenames it uses. Sometimes it doesn't like all the 'dots' in the codejock filenames. So if you change the filename in the manifest and (of course) the filename of the file you deploy with your app, then everything should be fine.
You can also place files in subdirectories by simply changing the manifest filenames like for example:
<file name = "Controls\Calendar.ocx">

Thanks for all the info about the manifest. I tried this solution on windows XP and everything is working fine, but it looks like I'm missing something when testing on windows Vista.

I'm giving you the essential part of my manifest :

  <trustInfo xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">
      <!-- RequestMinimum -->
        <PermissionSet Unrestricted="true" ID="Custom" SameSite="site" />
        <defaultAssemblyRequest permissionSetReference="Custom" />
      <!-- RequestedPrivileges -->
        <requestedExecutionLevel level="requireAdministrator" uiAccess="false" />


  <file name="ocx\SkinFramework.ocx" asmv2:size="526256" xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
    <!-- Hash -->
        <dsig:Transform Algorithm="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:HashTransforms.Identity" />
      <dsig:DigestMethod Algorithm="" />
    <!-- Libraries -->
    <typelib tlbid="{bd0c1912-66c3-49cc-8b12-7b347bf6c846}" version="12.0" helpdir="" resourceid="0" flags="HASDISKIMAGE" />
    <comClass clsid="{3f175045-ad09-4780-b038-6a6f3725aac8}" threadingModel="Apartment" tlbid="{bd0c1912-66c3-49cc-8b12-7b347bf6c846}" progid="Codejock.SkinFramework.12.0.2" description="SkinFramework Control" />
    <comClass clsid="{e617f828-c4d2-4d4d-9e48-7523230a2595}" tlbid="{bd0c1912-66c3-49cc-8b12-7b347bf6c846}" progid="Codejock.SkinFrameworkGlobalSettings.12.0.2" description="SkinFramework Global Settings" />

I use the 12.0.2 version of SkinFramework and I'm sure the clsid and tlbid are the good ones.

Is there anything I have to add in my manifest file to make my application work without having to register the ocx file on Vista?

The problem in the last post was a configuration in Delphi for the compression of the executable.

We now use the manifest file on vista with no problem

I attached a revised version of the manifest creator tool:

Usage: CreateManifest {\r} folder manifestname

\r option is to search recursively through folder
folder is the folder name\path where ocx(s) are located
manifestname is the name you want to use for the file created

Hello SuperMario,

How exactly is the created manifest to be used?
I'm getting nowhere in trying to get it to work.

Can I get a outline in what needs to be done in order to make it happen?

Hi Guys,

I too have had trouble trying to get a Clarion app to work with the manifest approach.  I used MMM (Make My Manifest) to create the manifest file for the example ChartBrowser VB6 app and all worked well, but when the same manifest settings are used with Clarion nothing is displayed.
Anyone had any success with languages other than VB6?

Hei Supermario!

Does the CreateManifest.exe do a unregister of the OCX's involved in a generate of manifestfile?
